Alpha 6: Aquatic palette and Escort quests

The latest soundStrider alpha adds a new palette and a surprise new quest type. In the Aquatic palette, players venture into the depths of the ocean to swim through dreamy soundscapes. And its new escort quests task players with taking props from one place to another.

Introducing Escort quests

From the latest shiftBacktick blog post:

This update also includes a surprise feature: escort quests! They answer the question: if we’re walking through sounds, can we walk with them too? In these quests, players encounter props that join them on their journey to a specific destination.

I hope you enjoy this update. Be sure to share your favorite bookmarks below and wishlist soundStrider on Steam.
